Off the back of an emphatic result over Brisbane Roar, Melbourne City return to AAMI Park searching for consecutive wins on the home stretch of the regular season. This week, the boys in City blue take on Adelaide United, in what is set to be a Saturday blockbuster.
With the school holidays in full swing and just two home matches remaining for the year, there’s no better time than now to get behind the boys. As the top four race heats up, City will look to continue their unbeaten streak at home in a vital six-point battle, which will play a defining role in shaping the final standings.

For the big kids, Stomping Ground Brewery pop-up bar returns once again, where you can unwind with a limited-edition City Pale Ale while our DJ, Samus Jay, spins some tunes in the lead up to the match.
Little ones can emulate their City heroes at our small sided matches and show their skills at our City inflatables; while there will be plenty of food, activities and giveaways to keep everyone busy.
Plus, Easter festivities are set to hit City Square! Take part in our epic Easter Egg hunt* at 3:30pm for your chance to meet City’s Man of the Match on the pitch post-match; and keep your eyes peeled for a special appearance by the Easter Bunny.
